Day 67 Singapore

I was all over the map today…  I left the ship before 8:00 this morning with Becky & Ed and we headed to Clarke Quay on the Singapore River via the MRT as a jump off point for our exploring.  We walked along the river toward Marina Bay catching the sights along the way.  One of the most amazing was a new building, a restaurant, which looks like a huge ship resting on top of three large buildings… amazing!  The Merlion on the bay which normally spouts water is still out of commission from a lightning strike a couple of years ago, bummer.  After going to Merlion Park, we headed back toward Chinatown where I was to meet a couple of old friends that were on the Princess World Voyage, Ian & Carole Paterson.  Shortly after arriving in Chinatown I connected with Ian & Carole and the visit was grand.  The highlight of our visit was the three of us getting a fish pedicure.  Those fish eating away all the dead skin is a trip.  Just don’t eat at their seafood restaurant.  The visit with my friends was a very special part of a great day.  This evening, Allan, Sandra, Ed, Becky, Robert, Bronwyn and myself went to Clarke Quay for a fabulous Chinese dinner….  What a wonderful day!!!!

Thanks for explaining the fish mani/pedi. What a cool experience! I'd be curious to try it... how long does it take and is it as good as a traditional mani/pedi?

Fantastic photos from Singapore, Jeff! Thanks!

Hey jeff, does singapore still have all "the rules"? No gum, no spitting, etc.etc.....? The 1st time i was there they had all the rules listed on a shirt of what you "CAN'T DO " It was also the time that they were expanding singapore.

All the rules are still there... I probably violated at least 2...
